to the business of the day. you sit on the house budget committee, and you're chairman. paul ryan came out this week with the day before the president met with the republican caucus with his budget for 2014 which looks a lot like the budget for 2013 which looked a lot like the budget for 2012. >> except for -- >> bill: it's worse? >> it's worse. it's more cynical than the prior budgets because what it did was, they spent all last year campaigning against the affordable care act. and about slashing money out of medicare. >> that's been actually their mantra for two elections now. well, in the budget, he repeals the law, affordable care all of the provisions of the law, keeps the $700,000,000,000 worth of save savings, keeps the trillion dollars worth of taxes under affordable care act. >> that's what makes this budget come close to balancing in 10 years. so all of the things he campaigned against, he put in his budget. >> uh-huh. >> then said we are going to take the money out of medicare and we are going to tax you but we are not going to give you the benefit
? we should make that promise, it is doable. even paul ryan whose budget did not balance the budget comes out with one that does. >> how to make it personal? joe made this case and we wrote articles about this. during the sequestration battle, obama gave his speech about the horrific sequestration and how bad it was. he was surrounded by the village people. he had a person behind him with a hard hat and make an native american. when john boehner came out he had a doomsday clock behind him, counting down the days to the sequester. he wanted to point the blame to obama. we should take credit for this. for the first time we're going to sort of cut spending at the federal level and we're going to talk a how that will help people in the long run. >> one quick thing. i ask people at cpac what they think about the second obama term and the real challenge for conservatives is you're dealing with a democratic senate and democratic white house. it is easy to propose a 10 year balanced budget like the conservatives are doing in the house but that is not going to be political reality in the sho
by budget chairman paul ryan. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to the order of the house of january 3, 2013, the chair will now recognize members from lists submitted by the majority and minority leaders for morning hour debate. the chair will alternate recognition between the parties with each party limited to one hour and each member other than the majority and minority leaders and the minority whip each, to five minutes but in no event shall debate continue beyond 11:50 a.m. the chair recognizes the gentleman from illinois, mr. quigley, for five minutes. mr. quigley: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, i rise today to call for continued reforms to our health care system. the affordable care act was a huge step in the right direction, but we can do more, because the path we're on is unsustainable. the u.s. spends approximately 18% of its g.d.p. on health, close to twice as much as other developed nations and yet we don't have better health care outcomes. health care costs are rising faster than inflation and wages, meaning they are eating a larger portion of americans' paychecks and the
afterwards to see what each side has in terms of what their aspirations are. he had lunch with paul ryan yesterday. this is a change that i think we should encourage whether it's motivated for all sorts of reasons we don't understand or not, ronald reagan would have done that and george bush would have done that and for our country to be successful we have to put aside some of this vitriol that exists and began to recognize that just because the other side doesn't have our view it does not mean they are not motivated for love of country. .. and it requires the kind of that ronald reagan showed each and every day and that is why am honored to be here. [applause] >> thank you. thank you, guys. thank you very much. [applause] >> five minutes. you want to take a couple of questions? >> thank you so much, governor. we have got six minutes of time to take just a couple of questions. if you have a question, raise your hand. just wait until we put a microphone in a. tell us who you are. start right over here. >> peggy. governor bush, thank you so much for your wonderful talk. i was curious, with
are competing with paul ryan or rand paul or marco rubio on the main stage. it happens and we are doing a great job with it host: on twitter they said, unless about-face on an birth control, abortion, immigration and a marriage, they are done. do you agree? have athe republicans majority in the state levees -- legislative chambers in the country. the republicans did not run a good presidential race. what i do find true in the statement he made is that it is not about issues. it is about performance. ofublicans have lost five the last six presidential elections because we have not adjusted to be changing demographics of our country. it is not a matter of changing who we are or what we stand for. it is a matter of reaching out to all americans, what ronald reagan used to do. the asiannot going to american community, the african- american community -- i am proud to be the first hispanic american charity american conservative union has ever had. is first rule of engagement to engage. i do not think we have done that well. the reason why we are losing ground with the growing demographics of america
committee chair, paul ryan, laid out his budget plan. sadly, it's just more of the same. like a bad record, this year's republican proposal is virtually the same document as the one he proposed last spring. it harms the middle class. it harms low-income americans, and it is especially bad for women and families. now, they have framed this budget and called it a prosperity one, a prosperity plan. but this budget should be called the road to austerity, because it is a plan that is most noteworthy for the rather harsh austerity it demands of the many and the lavish benefit it extends to the few. it clearly envisions a rising tide of selective tax cuts that would lift all yachts, but leave many dinghies behind. our republican friends like to talk about making the hard choices, but what they propose here would make it much harder for millions of americans and also make things much easier for a fortunate few. that's their plan. now, specifically under this plan, he has this new goal of balancing the budget in 10 years. and to accomplish this, he slashes funding safety net programs that, for seni
chairman paul ryan. most of that distinction was highlighted in the clip you just played. while both sides sort of maintain lower deficit numbers, they go about it in a different way. the democrats tried to vote raise new revenue. they struck the finance committee to come up with almost $1 trillion in tax reform package versus all the cuts on the spending side of the ledger on the house republican plan. so that is the debate we have been having for years and it is the debate we will keep having as these two budgets look to move to the course of their respective chambers next week. host: niels, what is new about what democrats are proposing? have we seen a lot of this comes from democrats before? guest: we're not talking about anything that is particularly novel. because we have not seen the senate to go through the formal process of drafting a budget resolution, holding a budget markup, and go to the floor with a budget resolution and pass a budget resolution in several years now, it is sort of putting pen to paper in a different way than we have seen the senate democrats do it lately. a l
differences. they certainly go in different directions. paul ryan's budget balances and 10 years and does not raise taxes and patty murray never balances and raises taxes $1.50 trillion over the next decade. what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the $600 million tax increase obama 1 in january and a trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of -- they did not know, they never got press attention. obama never talked about a trillion dollars of tax increases starting this year under obamacare. trillion tax$3 increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passed. of course, in never balances because they turn around and spend another -- more money, hundreds of millions more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. so, they do more spending with more taxes. does, andyan budget what i think it is interesting for the republican future -- it reforms entitlements and tax anybody over 55 from any changes but make changes so young people can still have the programs. it takes all of the 185 different welfare programs and block gra
budget defection in the house paul ryan's budget will be on the floor this week and senate democrats introduced their budget last week, and both des are saying none of their talk with are we'll arl and the associated press expected to as , and efore the hispanic would like to talk about the gang of eight is working on. this comes as the republican national committee yesterday outlines their report for republicans going forward, things the party needs to work on and one of them is embracing comprehensive immigration reform as part of an effort to reach out to minority voters. chris, republican caller. hi, what are your thoughts on saving for retirement? go ahead. caller: good morning from across the river, i was a federal committee and until recently when it was cut in 2010 and i'm on furlough and don't expect to be brought back because of the economy, so i just sought other work and tied to put money away for retirement and find myself working for home depot and they do have a 401-k plan and it's quite good, so i found myself investing in that. but the problem is i don't see a futu
the house republican, paul ryan, budget plan. >> hand out more budget-busting tax breaks for the wealthy, and to pay for these wasteful tax breaks, ld -- it would end medicare guarantee, it would raise tax on middle class families. to appease the tea party, the ryan republican budget would risk recovery, and that's just a price too high. >> reporter: needless to say, republicans disagree. they believe that their budget which ultimately, they say, would balance, would provide more opportunity and more jobs for the american people, jon. jon: obviously, both sides trying to get their points out. what are the republicans saying about these budgetary matters? >> reporter: they're going after the budget that was proposed by senate budget chair patty murray. they say it increases spending, increases the debt, never balances and raises taxes. senate republican leader mitch mcconnell a few moments ago called it extreme. >> a party that once cared about hard working american families seems of to have gone off the leftmost edge of the reservation with this budget. d.c. democrats' priorities are jus
the blueprint, which is prompted by paul ryan. his budget was criticized for bold spending cuts, but they balanced the budget in 10 years. >> the reason we are balancing the budget is because it is the necessary means to amend. it balances the budget without raising taxes. we are actually doing this. >> district proposal bouncing the book in four years, it is unlikely the house will approve that budget plan in lieu of ryan's plan. it outlines a 6 trillion-dollar deficit reduction over the next decade. speak evening of the senate side, of course. they are at work as well. that is really to keep the government up and running. >> exactly. it just convened about 30 minutes ago. they then went on to the budget resolution. >> i am amazed. stunned. republicans have blocked this and begin debate on the budget. we are all concerned about the impact these budget cuts. they are senseless and we should do away with them. >> you can see democrats in patty murray have their own plan. $1.85 trillion. they blast spending like medicare and medicaid, and it should be a lot on the docket today. ma
, paul ryan is talking about 6.1 trillion of deficit reduction the next ten years and almost all of from the spending side. party murray on the budget side of the democrats is talking $2.3 trillion of deficit reduction and half come from taxes and the balance come from spending, 975 billion from spending. a vast difference in size and significant difference in priorities. if you try to break down those priorities and look at some different categories of spending, you can see that in the discretionary side, this is the stuff that the sequester effects. ryan wants to cut 1.2 trillion which is 3 billion more than the sqester. party murray wants to cut 600 billion less than the sequester so the democrats the to store 600 billion of the sequester money. the democrats want 100 billion for jobs -- >> can i interrupt you there? par patty murray knows they will restore a dime -- >> i am trying to highlight major differences between the two sides. >> explaining to people at home, that's a good negotiating start if i were patty murray and a democrat, that's exactly where i would start knowing we ar
in strong support today of the balanced budget put forward by my friend and chairman paul ryan. and the reasonable and practical approach that this budget committee has taken while they budget hardworking taxpayer dollars. mr. speaker, this budget debate goes deeper than spread sheets and focuses on the longevity of the american dream. today we are considering a republican budget that actually balances in 10 years. calls for pro growth, pro job tax reform -- pro-growth, pro-job tax reform and strengthens medicare for our seniors and future generations. while in the senate harry reid and patty murray are considering a budget that never balances. it increases taxes by $1 trillion and let's medicare and social security race towards bankruptcy. and it turns medicare into a program that rations benefits to seniors. make no mistake, washington is approaching $17 trillion of debt and more than 12 million americans are unable to find work. the decisions we make will either sink us deeper into debt or put us on a path that encourages job creation and restores the belief that if we work
the here and now. paul ryan just released his budget. do you support it? >> i do support paul ryan's budget. it is a comprehensive plan to address the growing unfunded liabilities of the entitlement programs at the federal level. so that we can save the safety net for those who need it. and that we can bring the budget into balance and grow the economy. that's the essence of what the plan is about. >> mr. leader, in order to achieve that balance, to balance the budget, it also assumes that $600 billion in tax increases that you opposed in january. >> well, i mean, unfortunately, we have, in fact, after the last election, a situation where the status quo of the president there, the democratic controlled senate and the republican house, that those tax increases were something that the president supported. but i can tell you, if you look at the alternative vision coming out of the senate, there really is a two separate visions of the way this country ought to go. on the one hand, we have the house budget that is -- promotes a balance within ten years, that can grow our economy. and that you ca
by chairman paul ryan in the budget committee will increase economic growth and job creation, cut wasteful government spending and strengthen our entitle am programs -- entitlement programs. and for first time in recent memory, the house's budget will balance in 10 years. before i yield back, i'd like to acknowledge the launch of the house's historians' new website, the house and selma, bridging history and memories. this important historical record is now available for the public to explore at it will soon include oral testimonies from members of congress like john lewis, describing their role and contributions to the civil rights movement. i was proud to join congressman john lewis, congresswoman terri sewell, and martha roby, as well as others and the gentleman as well in that trip to selma and montgomery this year, but those particular who were active and involved in the unveiling of this project, i look forward to its growth in the years to come. i thank the gentleman from maryland and yield back. mr. hoyer: i thank the gentleman for his comments. and i would remark
. we've got paul ryan and a slew of smart, young, and energetic governors ready to take america into the future. [applause] and, the other guys? they got hillary and joe biden. [laughter] so don't tell me, folks, don't tell me, we are the party of compassion. we are the party of immigrants. we are the party of hard-work being taxpayers. we are the party of mobility, opportunity, growth, life, liberty, optimism, and inthey vision. [applause] -- innovation. and look, it is time we started acting like it. and once we do we'll have our comeback. [applause] now i know that some on the right have argued in recent months that the republican party is stuck on austerity. that all we do is talk about cuts. that we don't talk enough about the middle class. well like them i believe that those who stand to benefit most from the restraint of government are the poor and the middle class. but i also know that the only people who set policy are those who win elections. we're not going to do it by dropping a policy paper in everybody's mailbox. there is plenty of openness to new ideas, i assure y
